Requirements for Graduation

  1. Students with 124/128 credits accumulated and/or in progress must submit an application to graduate form to the Registrar’s Office by the preceding November 1 for May graduation, by April 1 for August graduation, or by June 1 for December graduation. The list of potential graduates is forwarded to each academic school and advisors and the registrar review each student file to determine if all requirements have been met. Students completing coursework off-campus should contact the Registrar’s Office for specific deadline dates. All students have approximately three weeks from the formal date of graduation to submit any paperwork required to clear them for graduation (specific deadline dates are posted each semester by the Registrar’s Office). Students not meeting this deadline will be notified in writing that they have not graduated.
  2. While each student is assigned a faculty advisor and is given an opportunity to obtain additional counseling on personal and collegiate matters, final responsibility rests with the student to assure that all degree program requirements are satisfied for graduation.
  3. Satisfactory completion of 124 credits (128 in specified programs) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 for all coursework taken at SUNYIT is required for graduation. Additionally, students must meet all specific program requirements and must maintain a 2.00 GPA in all courses in the major, as identified by their department, for graduation.
  4. There is a $10.00 diploma cover fee which must be paid prior to graduation. All financial obligations must be cleared before the diploma is released.
